Download Website 18 Dec 04:43 Embedthis Appweb 4.2.0


Embedthis Appweb is a fast, little embedded Web server. It is unmatched in efficiency and serves pages at native speed, using an event-driven, non-blocking core to serve multiple requests using minimal resources. It has integrated caching and the ESP "C" Web framework. Without compromising performance, it has extensive security controls and a rigorous security sandbox that helps protect the server and mitigate denial-of-service attacks. It is one of the most widely deployed embedded Web servers and is used in networking equipment, telephony, mobile devices, industrial control, and consumer and office equipment, and in high-performance Web services.

Release Notes: This release greatly boosts performance and improves scalability. Performance is now close to that of Nginx for smaller workloads. The release adds defensive security measures for denial-of-service attacks by limiting the request header parse time via the LimitParseTimeout directive.

Download Website 18 Dec 04:42 LDAP Account Manager 4.0


LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.

Release Notes: All account profiles and PDF structures are now saved separately for each server profile. LAM Pro supports QMail, MIT Kerberos, and custom fields for the admin interface (allowing you to manage your own object classes).

No download Website 18 Dec 04:39 GitFS 0.01


GitFS is a fuse- and git-based remote filesystem with local cache for disconnected operation. It does periodic commits and pushes/pulls to keep a local shadow file system in sync with a remote repository. The filesystem should continue to work when you are disconnected. Merging after disconnected updates from multiple locations is left to git.

Release Notes: The minimal program suite to make this somewhat usable now works in at least one or two cases on Mac OS X. Development should switch to Linux shortly. This software is not recommended for anyone who is not git-savvy and comfortable hacking Python. To make this do anything close to useful probably requires a bit of both. It is definitely alpha, but might be usable now for a handful of people.

Download Website 18 Dec 03:23 patool 0.18


Various archive formats can be created, extracted, tested, listed, searched, compared, and repacked by patool. The advantage of patool is its simplicity in handling archive files without having to remember myriad programs and options. The archive format is determined by the file(1) program and as a fallback by the archive file extension. patool supports 7z (.7z), ACE (.ace), ADF (.adf), ALZIP (.alz), APE (.ape), AR (.a), ARC (.arc), ARJ (.arj), bzip2 (.bz2), CAB (.cab), COMPRESS (.Z), CPIO (.cpio), deb (.deb), DMS (.dms), FLAC (.flac), gzip (.gz), ISO (.iso), LRZIP (.lrz), LZH (.lha, .lzh), LZIP (.lz), LZMA (.lzma), LZOP (.lzo), RPM (.rpm), RAR (.rar), RZIP (.rz), SHN (.shn), tar (.tar), XZ (.xz), zip (.zip, .jar), and ZOO (.zoo) formats. It relies on helper applications to handle those archive formats (for example bzip2 for BZIP2 archives). The archive formats tar, zip, bzip2, and gzip are supported natively and do not require helper applications to be installed.

Download Website 18 Dec 03:20 DataCleaner 3.1


DataCleaner is a data quality analysis tool that allows you to perform data profiling, validating, and minor ETL-like tasks.

It can be used for master data management (MDM) methodologies, data warehousing projects, statistical research, preparation for extract-transform-load activities, and more.

Release Notes: Data Quality KPIs can now be defined as formulas (mathematical expressions), not just raw metrics. It is now possible to fire ad-hoc SQL queries towards all datastores (DB, CSV, Excel, and more). A new analysis option, the Value matcher, was added. With this analysis, it's easy to identify unexpected values in a field. Management of jobs, including copying and deleting jobs, has been made a lot easier by exposing the functionality directly in the UI. It has been made possible to change historic data quality metrics in order to reposition results into the timeline.

No download No website 17 Dec 22:14 uma::bson 2.1


uma::bson is a DOM-style C++ API for reading/writing BSON data. Unlike the MongoDB C++ API, which exposes a read-only interface with a separate interface for creating a BSON representation, this API allows reading/writing on the existing data. The API is designed primarily for serialising/deserialising BSON data to/from streams (files, socket connections, etc.).

Release Notes: This release adds a Document::isEquivalentTo method to compare two documents for equivalence, where two documents have the same elements but in different order (in contrast to equality check, which requires the same element ordering). It fixes a bug in BinaryData::getSize implementation where it was not reporting the 5 extra bytes (4 for the length of the binary data and 1 for the binary data type) included in the BSON representation. It refactors BinaryData to use a PIMPL to allow for efficient pass-by-value semantics.

Download Website 17 Dec 22:13 Fimex 0.41


Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.


Release Notes: This release comes bundled with an R interface, allowing R users to access gridded data from all supported formats. In addition, R users can use Fimex to detect the coordinate system of the data and simplify extraction. The extract.selectVariables option is much more intelligent, i.e. it automatically selects additional variables that are required to read the chosen variable, e.g. coordinates, projections, and bounds. It is possible to compile the Fimex library with log4cpp support for use in an environment where logging is important.

No download Website 17 Dec 22:12 dhcpy6d 20121217


dhcpy6d delivers IPv6 addresses for DHCPv6 clients, which can be identified by DUID, hostname, or MAC address, as in the good old IPv4 days. Addresses may be generated randomly, by range, or by arbitrary ID or MAC address. Clients can get more than one address, leases and client configuration can be stored in databases, and DNS can be updated dynamically.

Release Notes: Adds support for Mac OS X. Fixes a bug in lease storage.
